my emergency parking brake just "snapped" - is it expensive to fix

Asked by May 06, 2012 at 12:56 AM about the 1998 Toyota RAV4 4 Door AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a '98 manual transmission (380,000 kms) so I always use my emergency brake when i park it.  I went to put it on and the lever just came up super easy and I had no "parking" brake.  Is this a hard thing to fix - ie expensive?

Shouldn't be, you could have just snapped the cable. Get up underneath the vehicle to take a look.
